VegasBrandon calls BYU's offensive plays and, as a 2nd year
Offensive Coordinator, he still has a lot to learn. It means some growing pains,
but, hopefully, he's learning and BYU's offense will be much improved
as the season progresses and in years to come.The biggest
improvement from Utah and Boise State to Hawaii, wasn't BYU's choice
of running backs, or Hawaii's defense, it was the marked improvement in
BYU's offensive line.
For some reason Bronco gets too fixated on certain players. Alisa was one
during the BSU game. Williams only touched the ball once, but gained 6 yards.
Instead of trying Williams again, Bronco went back to Alisa, who was only
gaining 2 ypc. Same thing with Nelson, who couldn't sustain a drive and
had to throw 3 interceptions before he was pulled out.I can
understand sticking to your game plan, but when your game plan isn't
working you need to adjust quickly, not wait until the last minute and pray for
All you need to know about offensive players is if they field punts in practice.
Based on their game performances (yes, Hawaii is not very stiff competition) I
don't understand why Mendenhall isn't more positive on Hill and
Williams.They must really be stinking it up in practice. Either that or
he's really trying to tone down expectations so he doesn't have
another player get as much hype as Heaps did. All I know is his comments to the
media the past week really have me wondering about either his ability to
evaluate offensive personnel or his ability to avoid playing favorites.
My word, Coach Bronco. You're team just had a win, show a littl enthusiasm.
I nearly fell asleep listening to the head coach of our Cougs talk about his
Williams needs to play. All the running backs seem to be doing well, but
Williams is fast and awesome. He isn't getting the praise he deserves.
